FYI - Please watch your language
« on: March 23, 2012, 02:01:52 PM »
We hate to be word nazis, but my casual comments don't seem to be doing the trick. We're pretty laid back here, and everyone likes it. But, the use of "colorful adjectives" is getting to be a problem for some.

No curse words are allowed here. Many of us access the site from work sometimes. And, we also have all sorts of members here that fit into many different groups. There is no need to curse left and right here...

I want to remind everyone of rule #2 (forum rules can be found here: http://texasgunforum.com/index.php?topic=1495.0 ):

Quote
2. Please do not be ignorant or use foul language. We eliminated the word censor, but please use common sense

If things don't change from the few who do this, I'll be forced to just start deleting posts, or turn the word censor back on. I had convinced Ryan that having a word censor was a bad idea back when the forum first started. But, some people here are taking advantage of that.

Another bump as people are not getting this. I have edited many posts over the past month.

Final bump - some people think it's funny to trigger the word filter CONSTANTLY, because they know their curse words get replaced by our word filter (which I reluctantly added back after no one got the message).

It's ridiculous that we even had to reactivate the word filter because the handful of people who are doing this constantly cannot get it thru their head that this is not allowed. You do not typically see this type of language allowed on many of the gun forums. People should know better.

If a regular offender does this again, they will be removed. Last warning. Maybe we can all be adults and the word filter can then be removed.
